Online advertising shines in sputtering Thai economy

By Khettiya Jittapong BANGKOK, (Reuters) – Unfazed by Thailand’s faltering economy, businesses are penciling in bigger budgets for digital advertising as they target Thai consumers via smartphone apps, social networking forums and video-sharing websites.

While that lags the 44 percent and 53 percent growth in 2014 and 2013, respectively, the near-term outlook for online advertising looks sharp as advertisers increasingly target Thai consumers in the virtual world.
